NAB 2020: FOR-A Offers and lsquo;World of Possibilities and rsquo; with 12G-SDI 4K Solutions, Expanded IP Options

With expansive product lines supporting 4K, 12G, HDR, and IP workflows, FOR-A Corporation of America will offer a “World of Possibilities” to attendees at the 2020 NAB Show (Booth C5016) in April in Las Vegas, Nev. Making its NAB debut, the new MFR-6100 routing switcher was built to support 12G-SDI infrastructures. It provides single-cable transfer of 4K video for less complex cabling. The MFR-6100 also includes multi-format I/O support, auto signal detection, and SNMP monitoring support. Add up to 16 I/O cards (nine channels per card) to configure a matrix up to 144x144.

Processing remains an important part of today’s multi-format broadcast environment. Designed to support live HDR broadcast production, the FA-9600 multi-purpose signal processor provides HDR and Wide Color Gamut support and conversion of multiple formats, including 12G, 4K, 1080p, and HD/SD. FOR-A also offers frame rate converters such as the FRC-9100, which supports 3G, HD, and SD content, including upconversion and interlace-to-progressive conversion. The FRC-9100 can also support 12G-SDI and 4K content with optional software.

Additionally, FOR-A will demonstrate efficient HD integration with third-party graphics, replay systems, and production servers, including partner products such as the ODYSSEY Insight video server, ClassX content creation and graphics playout solution, Variant Systems Group's Envivo Replay sports and live event replay solution, and InSync's frame synchronizer, frame rate converter, and up/down converters.

With New FOR-A HVS-2000 Switcher and ClassXGraphics, WLVT-TV Improves Production Workflows and On-Air Look Posted: 19/02/2020
With New FOR-A HVS-2000 Switcher and ClassXGraphics, and nbsp;WLVT-TV Improves Production Workflows and On-Air Look

FOR-A Corporation of America today announced PBS39/WLVTTV, part of Lehigh Valley Public Media based in Bethlehem, Penn., upgraded its control room last August with a FOR-A HVS-2000 HANABI video production switcher and ClassX broadcast graphics system. The new equipment has improved the on-air look of the station’s original programming as well as its live production workflows.

 

For example, the HVS-2000 can load and playback graphics from the ClassX, so the TD can access them during live productions. As a result, PBS39’s graphics designer does not have to be in the control room for “routine” productions. “When I saw how well the two integrated together, plus the price, it seemed like an obvious choice,” said Andrea Cummis, chief technology officer.

The ClassX also supports the use of RSS feeds for updating election results and other data in graphics, a feature that was not supported by the station’s older graphics system. Cummis said the system “worked great” for local primary election coverage last year, but she is looking forward to using the system to its full potential for Election Night in November.
